I was not too sure how to categorize this wonderwul book. I never was really sure where to draw the line between fantasy and fairy tale. This is surely a fairy tale, but so detailed and full of picturesque characters that I deemed it fantasy. Here is a short excerpt:
Quote:
Creeping Shadow stood timidly at the gate for a moment, longing yet fearing to enter. How could she dare to hope that the Prince would turn from a place*so bright and joyous to come to the aid of her mistress in a drear and dangerous land?
But the need of the Shadow Witch was too great to be set aside. Her servant cast off her fears and stole silently through the garden and up to the radiant door. Pausing on its threshold, her dark eyes traveled straight down the palace hall to the vast room that opened beyond, and there, upon a tall golden throne, King Red Flame sat. At his right hand stood he whom she had come to seek.
She remembered him well, that brave and handsome Prince, whom her mistress had for a time deluded by her magic in the Land of Shadows. His yellow locks fell as softly over his shoulders, his noble countenance wore the same high look of courage and good cheer as on that day. His scarlet velvet cloak and cap,*his waving feather, were the very same. Close beside him was the Princess, in shining robes, with floating hair of the palest gold.
Never before had the Shadow seen her, but from her charming face, so tender and beautiful, she knew that it could be none else, knew, also, that no cry for help and pity could come to her in vain.
You shouldn't miss this one under any pretext. If I ever saw a pleasurable read, this is one. This is a classic in it's own right.

Got it from PG, gave it the MTH treatment, added cover (illustrated)
